SoundHeap Audio Recorder

SoundHeap Audio Recorder


Record, play back, and share audio on your android phone. This stores the audio files as ogg vorbis and is designed to be used to send recordings between bands at the highest recording quality possible on the phone's microphone.

This also includes a checkbox for only recording when there is actual noise! Perfect for classroom lectures.

Recent changes:
A new checkbox is added for turning on and off silence ignoring. When the "ignore silence" checkbox is checked, recording pauses one second after the last noise and continues once something else happens.

Vorbis FTW The application is does that it should do, still there is that annoyin issue that after screen automatically switchs off it does stop recording. For now I just unpacked package with apktool and appended android:keepScreenOn="true" into res/layout/record.xml and repackaged again. Now it works much better meaning does not stop if left alone more than 90 seconds. The author should consider removing AudioRecordService->stopRecording() in the onPause() handler or make some checkbox/menuentry for user to decide. Another issue is a high cpu usage, on my 0.3-0.6-1GHz phone top shows 50% cpu usage for that proccess, though I dont really know which clock preset it was running during the test. Anyway recording seams to go flawlessly thus having 50% infact is very low, therefore it might be an advantage. For comparison: standard cyanogenmod7 recorder show no more than 7% Hi-Fi mp3 -- around 46% Agila recorder (AAC/AMR) -- 0% ( it uses OMX codec thus I think it is all done in hardware ) Nevertheless, well done.

Great! Was looking for an Ogg sound recorder & this is it. I would suggest adding a way for the user to choose the audio quality & 'keep screen on'.
